The majority of doors we use throughout the day all operate using the same hinged technology. But when doors start getting bigger and heavier, traditional hinges just won’t do.

The custom built door on this home in Quito, Ecuador is a perfect example of an over-sized door that went above and beyond, and needed modern technology to accommodate it.

With a design similar to that of a traditional box joint, this custom designed pivoting door makes a dramatic statement as it welcomes people into the home that was designed by Diego Guayasamin Arquitectos.

Although the designers of the home could have gone with a more modest and less impressive door, the striking size and unique design of this wooden door sets the home apart and creates a memorable experience for all who walk through it.
